We want this to be a website that people in Lincoln and Nebraska can rely upon for information about recreational cycling. We want to know of any Nebraska-area rides that aren't in our listings. If you are aware of a recreational ride that is not listed, please contact the webmaster and provide a description and other details.

Bike Safety PSA Video

GPBC board member Steve Clements and Lancaster County Chief Deputy Sheriff Jeff Bliemeister star in a 30-second Public Service Announcement video on the 3-foot rule. The video and an audio version will be played on local TV and radio stations. Thanks Steve and Jeff for getting the word out to the public about bicycle safety.

Heatstroke 100

The 10th Anniversary Heatstroke 100 Ride was a great success! We had 417 folks riding the roads from Louisville to Ceresco. An event of this size would not have been possible without the assistance of the many volunteers who helped with registration, fixed and roving SAGs, signage, and logistics. The GPBC Board of Directors would like to thank all of the volunteers: Max Antoine, Cady Blackstock, Byron and Sue Block, Scott Braly, Denise Bulling, Tony Ceralo, Stacy Christmann, Chinda David, Alan Ebner, Richard Eisenmenger, Jeanen France, Pat Grewe, Paul Harrison, Agnes Humlicek, Michael Laughlin, Larry Lienemann, Amy Lorenze, Pat Lorenze, Mike Minnick, Chad Petersen, Byron Rahn, David Schmidt, Gina Simanek, Kate Speck, Richard Stibor, and Eric Umland.
